NBA Draft 2013: Brew Hoop Community Draft Board - Pick #8

Jason Szenes

There are still some highly-rated players yet to be ranked as we move through the middle of the lottery region of the draft. Will talent continue to dominate?

The Brew Hoop community has selected Alex Len, C, Maryland, for the #7 spot on its draft board. Len made a name for himself as a teenager in international competition with his home country of Ukraine before earning a scholarship to Maryland. While his freshman season underwhelmed, Len blossomed as a sophomore, boosting his per-minute scoring and rebounding while maintaining solid-though-not-fantastic 57% true shooting. He's a good shot-blocker and is generally seen as a more polished player, particularly on offense, than most big men of his age. That two-way potential has a few scouts wondering why he isn't being discussed more as a possible first-overall pick. Questions about his motor and toughness--two elements notably absent from Nerlens Noel profiles--have given some people pause. One look at his measurements, though, and you'll know why plenty of teams would be willing to roll the dice on Len.
